About me
My name is Kate Hardy, I am a 23 year old Head Runner, working at Mother London. In my spare time I direct, write and film my own short films. I have hopes in becoming a TV/ Film producer. I gathered my experience through production running on Television production sets and office production since the age of 15 and have graduated from The University of The Arts in 2020, majoring in Media Communications and Production. ​Growing up in the North-East of England, my cultural identity is embedded within who I am today, the love I have for capturing on camera and articulating on paper is authentic stories of individuals who's cultural identity empowers them for the future. I am super hard working, a great communicator and a passionate, charismatic and independant female. You can take the girl out of the North, but you can never take the North out of the girl.
